  1. Good afternoon, DohaGuide team.

    Would you please advise, the MoI office location (Gharafa of Al Duhail or else) for the purpose of :

    1. Correcting data of the issued family residence visa. in this case mismatch on passport number/validity and miss on profession.

    2. do the office still open on 5pm in the afternoon of working day, for assisting correcting data as mentioned on item 1 above.

    thank very much for tour assist

    best regards.

    1. Hi DoE, Main Immigration Office (Duhail) may be busy and sometimes they don’t allow entry in the evening. For correction of approved visa, you can try visiting any other MOI Service Center. Most probably they can do that.

      1. Hello Doha Guide Team,

        Thanks for the information. Would you please inform the other MOI Service Centre that can handle the corrections of the approved visa, other than Duhail?

        thank you,

        best regards

        1. Hi DoE, You can try Mesaimeer, Wakra or Pearl. They were allowing corrections earlier. But we never know when they change policies.

  2. Hi I applied for family visit for my wife on 11 th August through Metrash2. Still the status showing “Application under process”. Not yet changed to either review or approved state. Is it get approved? Or can I expect any updation still?

      Hi Sarath Kumar, It seems expatriate affairs are still in Gharaffa. Those who visited Gharaffa recently were asked to come back in September.

    1. Doha Guides Team

      Hi Jothi, If the reason for rejection says “sponsor does not meet conditions” either it could be salary or profession. If you have the required qualifications and still it was rejected, you have to visit Immigration office with all your original documents. Note that Gharaffa Immigration is not allowing entry this month. You can either try visiting or go next month.
